No new COVID-19 positive cases were reported in Nagaland on December 27 while the caseload stood at 11897.

As per Health department’s data 23 positive patients were discharged after their recovery from the infection on Sunday.

Meanwhile, in its weekly report, the Health & Family Welfare department has expressed serious concern that 663 cases or 14% of cases from the community that have been tested positive in flu clinics had no history of travel or contact with a positive case. “This is worrying since it signifies many more undetected cases in the community. One undetected case in a social gathering is enough to cause a super spreader event,” the health department stated.

It also said that the State’s sample positivity rate continues to remain high at 10% against the national average of 6, although there has been a decline from a record high of 15.5% in October.

The department further said that post-festival surge in COVID-19 cases was a major worry in the State.

PTI adds: India’s COVID-19 tally of cases climbed to 1,01,87,850 with 18,732 new cases in a day, while 97,61,538 people have recuperated so far pushing the national recovery rate to 95.82 per cent, according to the Union Health Ministry data updated on Sunday.

The death toll climbed to 1,47,622 with the novel coronavirus virus claiming 279 lives in a span of 24 hours in the country, the data updated at 8 am showed.

The COVID-19 case fatality rate was registered at 1.44 per cent.

There are 2,78,690 active cases of coronavirus infection in the country which comprises 2.73 per cent of the total caseload, the data stated.
